There are certain times when you just know you need to see a doctor. Perhaps it is for a broken bone or an infected toenail or even lingering headaches that do not go away. Any abnormal occurrences with your health or parts of your body that are in pain or are not functioning correctly need professional medical attention. This includes your teeth.
One of the most appreciated advancements in dentistry in the last decade has been the development of white fillings. Also referred to as tooth-colored fillings, white fillings allow patients to have cavities filled without the embarrassment of dark spots on their teeth from amalgam fillings.

These fillings are ideal for most people, yet some people are not aware of this option.

Do you remember the tagline, “Maybe she’s born with it?” The next part of the tagline says, “Maybe it’s Maybelline.” It was a popular advertising slogan, and it worked. It made everyone wonder if a woman wearing Maybelline’s makeup was actually wearing makeup, or if it was a natural beauty.
